Art, art and more art..

 

It was my birthday last week and my family, knowing how much I love art, put in a substantial amount for me to spend at the Art Upmarket held in Winthrop Hall at UWA on Saturday. The perfect venue for such an occasion as the university is an architectural piece of art itself. As you can see below even though WA is Covid free there was a queue, only so many people admitted into the hall at one time. Oh my gosh there was so much fabulous art.. so much so that my Libra trait of indecision kicked in and I came away with nothing.. much to Aimee's annoyance I blame any indecisive moment on my star sign 😉    

I wasn't sure if the artists participating would appreciate me taking pics which gave me time to absorb the talent. Aimee did however come away with a gorgeous new piece of art for her wall, in the meantime I will enjoy the anticipation of a future fabulous purchase. The shot below I couldn't resist, two dogs of similar sausage shape but completely different in size and girth :) It's quite something to hear a Basset hound bark, so deep! Hope you had/are still having a good weekend, take care and stay safe..

  1. This weekend is our annual town Artists Studio Tour, when artists open their studios and homes, and lots of wonderful art changes hands. But this year is different, it's all on line.
    So I was very pleased to see your photos of real people going in to see the art for sale, and making purchases in person. We are not at that stage yet.
    Nobody wearing masks in your photo! I'm surprised.

  2. Dearest Grace,
    Happy belated Birthday!
    That Cathedral like Winthrop Hall is quite something. Does that pipe organ ever get played?
    Cute photo of the male black & tan Dachshund, like my Mauzie girl.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  12. I thought it was Pisceans like me who were indecisive lol, welcome to the club. On the art, that would be my ideal birthday outing too. Hope you get to go back and get something.

  16. What a wonderful post. I hope you had a lovely birthday shared with loved ones. I relate to your indecisiveness, my birthday is Oct 13 and I struggle to make up my mind in certain areas.

  17. Art? I only noticed that fine pipe organ!
    It'd be nice to hear an organ recital.

    I'm more into music than art. Especially music from a pipe organ.
